The name Ted Ligety should be familiar to all those who know what's what in the world of skiing. The multiple world cup winner and proud owner of two Olympic gold medals is known on the ski scene as an "enfant terrible" who is always pushing the boundaries. He harbours a deep passion for the snow-capped mountains and the feeling of unrestricted freedom as he races down virgin slopes. So it's no wonder that the designs that come out of Shred Optics are a little bit crazy and out there - just like their founder.
Shred Optic's success story began in winter 2005 when Ted Ligety and materials engineer Carlo Salmini met by chance on the slopes. Ted was thrilled by Carlos' ski equipment, most of which he'd modified himself, and a bromance soon followed. They put their heads together, developed their first prototype and just a year later, in autumn 2006, the brand Shred Optics was formed.
The idea is simple: Ted and Carlo wanted to make high-quality products that met their own expectations and that would work just as well for skiers, snowboarders, racers and freeskiers - without compromise! The fact that they put all of the different disciplines in the same basket helped Shred Optics to achieve international success and their hunger for innovative designs continues to be as great as it was at the beginning. Several patents and awards later, Shred remain true to their roots and each new collection by Ted and Carlo continues to be put through its paces.
There's nothing better than seeing the slopes and glittering snow through a pair of Shred Optics goggles. These goggles are ideal for skiing and snowboarding and offer you maximum comfort in every situation. Their patented ShredWide design gives you a phenomenal field of vision and the Contrast Boosting Lenses together with anti-fog treatment ensure clarity, sharpness and contrast in all light conditions. Even sports professionals like Tom Wallisch, Olympic winner Lara Gut and snowboard legend Antti Autti swear by Shred Optics ski goggles. Vivid colours and bold logos look great against the white backdrop of the snow.
A Shred helmet is the perfect accessory to top off your outfit. Shred Optics incorporate pioneering technology in their helmets like Slytech NoShock and the RES Rotational Energy System. Both systems work together to offer you all-round protection from the linear and multidirectional forces that have an impact on your head when skiing and snowboarding, and also absorb excessive rotational energy. Despite their extensive protection, these ski helmets are extremely lightweight and sit comfortably on your head with every move.
